1.0 out of 5 stars Tacky and misleading to use "vegan" for a leather shoe, November 19, 2010
This review is from: Franco Sarto Women's Vegan Pump (Apparel)
What was Franco Sarto thinking using the name "Vegan" for a leather shoe, then marketing it with "don't let the name fool you?" That goes beyond tacky to downright misleading. I won't be buying from this company again any time soon.

Yea for internet BS! Wheeee! Thanks for taking time out of your busy day pulling the wings off of flies and telling teenaged girls they look fat to stop by and contribute to the conversation. Jesus loves you!

Thanks for the heads up - I don't generally check to see if something is made of leather when it clearly states "vegan" - that may not be a concern for everyone, but what a bizarre marketing ploy... would people looking for leather even take a closer look at something labeled "vegan"?

And for those of you who may not be morally opposed to using animal products, that's fine - some of us are. If you were against fur and saw a coat called "faux baby seal" - wouldn't you be a little upset to receive an actual fur coat and find out you're wearing a dead baby?
It's false advertising, and it IS tacky and misleading - period.

It even says in the description, "Don't let the name fool you.." 'Vegan' is just the name of the shoe, just like Not Rated's 'Ruby' bootie, which isn't Ruby in color.
